The Results Are In! These Fruits & Veggies Have The Most Pesticides In 2018

Latest news

    If you’re like me, you have questions about the food you’re consuming – or as a general rule of thumb, you aim to be conscious & cautious of what goes into your body on the day-to-day.

    What should we really consider is purchasing organic, so that we can breathe a little easier knowing our toxin intake is bare minimum but how do we really determine this?

    Well, thankfully for us we won’t have to leave it up to luck or intuition to get the proper nutrients without the unwanted chemicals some produce carries. Every year, the Environmental Working Group tests a majority of the fruits and vegetables that make up the market in order to determine which conventionally grown produce contain the most—and least—chemical pesticides and luckily – It’s that time of year again.

    Released early this morning, their 2018 report has found that nearly 70 percent of produce tested was contaminated with pesticide residues.

    According to the report, strawberries, spinach, and nectarines were the worst offenders for the second year in a row. The average strawberry sampled tested positive for a whopping 20 different pesticides, and spinach had 1.8 times more pesticide residue by weight than any other crop. On the other end of the spectrum, avocados and sweet corn were the cleanest crops, with less than 1 percent of samples showing any detectable pesticides.

    As a side, eating organic is ideal, but if you can’t, or when you can’t, it’s great to know what to stay away from. If keeping your being in optimal shape to connect with yourself spiritually is part of your goal, eating clean and putting harmonious foods into your body is a necessary step.
